of justice, men and women without rank or wealth or title or fame would liberate us all in ways that our children now take for granted. people of all colors and creeds live and learn and walk together, and fight alongside one another and love one another. and judge one another by the content of our character in this greatest nation on earth. to dismiss the magnitude of this progress, to suggest as some sometimes do the little has changed -- that little has changed, that dishonors the courage and sacrifice sacrifice of those who paid the price to march. [cheers and applause] james chaney, andrew goodman, martin luther king, jr. -- they did not die in vain. their victory was great. but we would dishonor those heroes as well to suggest that the work of this nation is somehow complete. the ark of the moral universe may bend towards justice, but it does not bend on its own. to secure the gains this country has made requires constant vigilance, not complacency. whether it is by challenging those who erect new barriers to the vote, or ensure that the scales of justice work equally for all in th

to have you with us. confident and ready to strike at a moment's notice, president obama said his defense team is ready to strike syrian targets when given the order to do so. >> this mission is not time-sensitive. it will be effective tomorrow or next week or one month from now. and i am prepared to give that order. but having made my decision as commander in chief, based on what i am convinced is our national security interests, i am also mindful that i am the president of the world's oldest constitutional democracy. >> that's why i have made a second decision. i will seek authorization for the use of force from the american people's representatives in congress. for the last several days, we've heard from members of congress who want their voices to be heard. i absolutely agree. this morning i spoke with all four congressional leaders. they have agreed to schedule a debate and a vote as soon as congress come back in the session. congressional approval will be debated beginning september 9th. >> that's according to a statement released from speaker of the house congressman john boehner.
